Take a tour of Nubble Lighthouse in Maine, United States – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats.
Sitting atop an islet on lush green grass and lovely landscape is The Nubble Lighthouse.
Officially known by many as Cape Neddick Lighthouse, this beautiful yet simple structure is considered by many to be exemplary lighthouse.
The tower, made of cast-iron and lined with red-brick, is approximately 41 feet in height.
In 1874 Congress approved the 15,000 dollars it would take to build this lighthouse.
A photograph of this lighthouse was even put in the Voyager Spacecraft, whose mission is to provide information about our world to any possible extra-terrestrials.
Set amid the deep blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean on a small yet enchanting island with a pleasant coastline, this charming lighthouse is surely picture-perfect.
